Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm and its companion app on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch make safety easy - and decidedly less annoying. Nest Protect speaks up to tell you what the problem is and where it is. It will even message your iPhone when the alarm goes off or the batteries run low. And you can check on things at any time with the Nest app.
Nest Protect can also see the carbon monoxide you can't. Or if there's only a little smoke from just burning the toast, it gives you a friendly heads-up. It also gives you peace of mind by testing itself constantly and showing you everything's working with a quick green glow when you turn off the lights.
- Connect Nest Protect to Wi-Fi and it will send a message to your iPhone if the alarm goes off or the batteries run low
- Speaks up to tell you if there's smoke or CO and tells you where the problem is so you know what to do
- When there's CO, Nest Protect tells you where it's hiding
- Nightly Promise function tests Nest Protect's sensors and batteries and lets you know it's working with a quick green glow at night
- Silence the chirp of low batteries—Nest Protect shows you they're good before you doze off
- Heads-Up delivers a friendly alert so you can handle burning toast before a piercing alarm goes off
- Sends a message to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch if the alarm goes off or if batteries run low
- Prepare for an emergency with the What To Do feature; enter an emergency contact and if something goes wrong, you've got a plan
- When one Nest Protect senses trouble, it tells the others and they all speak up at the same time—even if Wi-Fi is down

Do not buy.
I bought four of these when they came out since I loved my nest thermostats. Two of them have been replaced because they had false I bought four of these when they came out since I loved my nest thermostats. Two of them have been replaced because they had false alarms (the only way to stop them from sounding was to rip out the batteries because wave is disabled and button push doesn't do anything. Wasn't this one of the main reason I bought these things?!). And then, even more importantly, one of them DIDN'T ALARM when the damper on my fireplace froze and the room filled up wih smoke! Honestly, I think these things need to be recalled until they are proven to work. Nest has gotten in way over their head on this. If you're actually concerned about safety, DO NOT BUY one of these. There are many less expensive, more reliable options. I would get my money back if I could.
Side note, by suspending sales for a bit of the protect, nest was cleverly able to remove this amazon listing in spring 2014, hence removing all the prior negative reviews. So the high rating here is not an accurate representation of the customer satisfaction.. There we're TONS of negative reviews before. What a joke.
UPDATE: I've had yet another false alarm here. So that's 4 nest protects... 3 false alarms, and 1 time there was no alarm at all with smoke present! I've had 3 replacements units so far, and now one of the replacements is having false alarms. These don't seem to work, AT ALL for me. I think there should be a class action lawsuit with these. Wow, just wow. …

Smoke alarm looks great. But more importantly, it works like a charm. Had it for several months. Burned food for the first time th Smoke alarm looks great. But more importantly, it works like a charm. Had it for several months. Burned food for the first time this week, and it politely told me there was smoke, but not enough smoke for it to go off in a full panic loud mode. Would buy more if I lived in a bigger place that warranted more detectors. Would, and have, recommended the alarm to friends and family. …

A smoke detector for the 21st century
There isn't a heck of a lot to say about a smoke detector that hasn't detected any smoke or carbon monoxide. It doesn't have false There isn't a heck of a lot to say about a smoke detector that hasn't detected any smoke or carbon monoxide. It doesn't have false alarms, it can be checked with your iPhone or iPad, and it lights up if you are in the habit of walking under it in the middle of the night without turning on lights. All these are good things.
There are no bad things. …

What square footage area does one monitor cover? I have a 3 story log home

Hmm, open plan log home, or does it have rooms? I'd plan to have one local to a device/place such as Hmm, open plan log home, or does it have rooms? I'd plan to have one local to a device/place such as boiler or kitchen, as well as one on say the landing, rather than rely on a specific square footage. Time to detect and raise an alert , giving you time to respond/evacuate, would be a better method to determine how many you need, in my opinion. …

Does the nest protect require nest thermostat?
- Asked by Matthew S from Charlotte
- Jul 1, 2014
No, it is not required. The NEST Protect will function fully on its own, including connecting to you No, it is not required. The NEST Protect will function fully on its own, including connecting to your smartphone app. If you have more than one NEST Protect unit in the house, they can 'talk' to each other, so that if an alarm goes off on one (i.e. the basement) and your somewhere else (i.e. upstairs) all the units will warn you of the fire/CO alarm.
Though if you DO have both the NEST thermostat and the Protect, they can 'talk' to each other to improve some functionality of the thermostat. i.e.: The sensors on the NEST Protect will report your presence in the house to the thermostat to help improve the auto away feature. Also, if a NEST Protect detects Carbon Monoxide, it will tell the thermostat, which will then shut down your furnace in case it's coming from there. …
